Hey, good morning. I hope your weather is better than ours, its rained all night & is still raining now!! Really wanted to take Nico out for a pootle today, looks like that's gonna have to wait!! 

Anyhoos, I'm here today to share with you my creation for My Time To Craft. Where this fortnight we want to see your


they must be part of the main image.

When I saw this image a few months back I just fell in love with her. I decided to make Nige a set of owl things lol....we have been together 20 years on the 23rd of this month so I thought as I didn't make him a wedding anniversary card this will make up for it!! I just need a frame for the big one.

This is about 8 x 10" just hope it looks ok when framed!

Used my new background die & feathers I have had for ages, but never used.

Decided to make a tag to go on the frame when I have wrapped it up!
